FSX Acceleration Boeing 221A Monomail. The 221A Monomail was a major advance in aircraft design, being one of the first all metal, stressed skin monoplanes built. Despite its advances the 221A's layout harked back to the biplane era, with the cabin forward, and open cockpit aft. Lack of a constant speed propeller prevented the Monomail's true success, as better twins were introduced by the time C-S props appeared. Only one 221A saw brief service between Chicago-Cheyenne. This is an FSX update of the great model by Tim Conrad. The package features an entirely reworked VC and cockpit interior as well as a newly configured 2D panel matching the VC in every respect. New smoke effect and new camera views have been added as well. Thanks to Tim Conrad for the original model and to Dale Caruso for his repaint.
